Your Swiss pharmaceutical contract manufacturer

With 40 years of expertise as a pharmaceutical contract manufacturer, the FRIKE GROUP is one of Europe’s leading specialists in this area. We use process mixers from 1.5 to 3000 liters to manufacture non-sterile, semi-solid and liquid formulations and suppositories. Thanks to our wide range of mixers, we are well set up to develop new formulations, including scale-up to the batch size you require. We also have impressive, wide-ranging solutions and expertise when it comes to packaging and filling.

Whether you are planning a production campaign, large or small, want to have new formulations developed or optimize your existing ones, we are your expert partner. In every collaboration, efficiency, innovation, confidentiality and customer friendliness are our top priorities.

Full service from your contract filler for pharmaceuticals

As a contract manufacturer and contract filler for pharmaceuticals, the FRIKE GROUP offers you a complete service, from (continued) development and filling to packaging and logistics. We always adhere to the highest pharmaceutical standards, with strict in-process controls. For example, we can assist you with developing a new galenic form or reworking an existing formulation. On request, we can provide you with a new active ingredient, prepare test medication and help with procuring the certificate of analysis.

Our Development department offers scale-ups from small quantities of 1.5 kg up to 3 tons. We are also happy to purchase highly active ingredients and excipients for you in accordance with pharmacopoeia standards. Thanks to our long-standing network, you benefit from high levels of availability of raw materials, and we can also find rare active ingredients on your behalf. Confidentiality is our top priority, regardless of the type of collaboration. The FRIKE GROUP has made a deliberate decision not to sell its own brands, so it is a neutral and independent partner for pharmaceutical production.

Contract manufacturer of suppositories

As a contract pharmaceutical manufacturer, we have extensive expertise in all types of medicinal products. We also have considerable expertise in suppositories of all kinds. These are characterized by their rapid effect, as they enter the body directly via the intestinal mucosa, and have certain advantages over oral forms of medication for various patient groups. This form of administration is also suitable for use as vaginal suppositories. At the FRIKE GROUP, we offer various options for suppositories, with the shape poured individually. They are available as strips of three or five with a filling content of 1 to 3 g.

Certificates for contract manufacturing of pharmaceuticals

Our production facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that meet the stringent requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice for medicinal products. Our manufacturing processes are certified by Swissmedic for Switzerland, EU-GMP for Europe, C-GMP for the USA and ALVISA for Brazil. We are continuously innovating and optimizing our processes to guarantee the highest quality, low production costs and efficient use of resources.
